Sharing the details on how to clean your Peloton bike, and keeping it feeling fresh and new, even with tons of use. Check out my post on how to set up your Peloton bike here!

Hi friends! How’s the morning? I hope you had a happy and lovely post-Thanksgiving weekend. We did some more decorating (the yard is done!), got our tree (after years with a fake tree, we converted to team Real Tree a few years ago and I’m a huge fan), and had a lovely dinner with friends.

For today’s post, I wanted to share the details on how to clean your Peloton bike, especially for my friends who are expecting it as their Santa gift this year. 😉 I’ve been a proud Peloton owner for about 4 years now, and while I don’t ride as much as I used to, I still hop on the bike about once a week. It makes it SO easy to get a cardio workout at home (even when the kids are home!), and I love that I don’t have to waste time commuting. It’s my go-to for super busy days when I still want to get in some movement.

How To Clean Your Peloton Bike

I like to keep things clean in the house, but it takes on a new layer when it’s exercise equipment. Equipment like the Peloton can collect dust, sweat, bacteria, fingerprints, and while it can look unappealing, it can also eventually affect the function of the equipment. (Learned this from years of working at gyms and studios.) Cleaning your Peloton bike regularly can help avoid unwanted odor and damage, BUT you can also damage your Peloton bike by improper cleaning. You definitely want to preserve the screen and make sure it continues to work!

I’m dedicating today’s this post to help my friends out there properly clean a Peloton bike and share what products are safe to use for cleaning Peloton bikes.

How To Clean Your Peloton Bike

Peloton frame

I clean my Peloton frame and resistance knob after each sweaty ride. If there are sweat spots anywhere, the whole thing gets wiped down. If I’m leisurely pedaling along and listening to music (using it as an active recovery day), I don’t wipe it down. The best time to clean the frame is directly after your ride, because then you’ll always remember to do it.

Why I ditched my 12-Step Skincare

For years I had dull, tired-looking skin that I spent so much time and money maintaining. And even then, I was never quite happy with the options out there – harsh ingredients, expensive treatments, 12-step routines… none of it was for me. Nobody’s got time to do that stuff every night! Since I’m all about efficiency, I wanted a product that would give me great skin without all the hassle. With that, I’m about to reveal my biggest secret so YOU TOO can clear your skin effortlessly!

SO what’s the solution?

I’ve been researching and working with our lab to formulate the perfect blend! We invented something that’s different than anything else on the market…Introducing the brand new, Natural Beauty! It features all of the hard-working, brightening, plumping, wrinkle-reducing skincare ingredients I love in a deliciously drinkable solution. (plus, it has the delicious dragonfruit flavor!)

The beauty benefits

  • Reduce wrinkles
  • Increase firmness & radiance
  • Improved hydration
  • Regulates good gut bacteria
  • Limit breakouts

Created with some of your favorite topical skincare products, our highly effective ingredients make Natural Beauty more than just a pretty face, it is also more than just a collagen blend.


I’ve tested and I’ve seen major results.

My skin has been significantly different the past year testing this product. Like I said, Natural Beauty is so much more than just a collagen supplement. So let’s dive into the top ingredients in this magical bottle to help you understand why:

  • WTF is Naticol®?: Not your average marine collagen. Widely recognized as one of the purest formulas on the market, Naticol® is made from sustainably-sourced fish collagen peptides. It’s been clinically tested to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve skin elasticity.
  • Hydrate with Hyaluronic: Chances are, you’ve probably seen or heard of Hyaluronic Acid from your favorite topical skincare brands. Hyaluronic acid in the skin binds to water to help increase moisture and reduce dryness.
  • PreticX®: The Gut-Glow Connection If something is off-balance in your gut, your skin is usually one of the first places you’ll see it. PreticX® is a stable prebiotic that helps nourish friendly bacteria in your gut and is clinically shown to increase bifidobacteria – responsible for helping to reduce inflammation and skin sensitivity. 

Have you ever seen any collagen powder with these powerful ingredients? I sure haven’t! I’ve waited so long for you to try it yourself and now it’s finally

Thanksgiving recap + Black Friday Finds

Hi friends! Happy Friday! I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving with lots of amazing food and time spent with those you love. I hope you know how grateful I am for all of you! Thank you so much for being here, for supporting my blog, podcast, and other random endeavors, and for being my virtual BFFs. Whether you’re new here (hello!!) or an OG blog reader (THANK YOU!), you mean so much to me and I’m thankful everyday for this little blog and the opportunity to hang out with you all.

My favorite little turkeys:

Our Thanksgiving was perfection. To start off the Thanksgiving and holiday festivities, we met up with my dad, stepmom, brothers, and some friends for the Gaslight Christmas show. Gaslight is a Tucson staple with melodramatic musicals. You cheer for the good guys, “boo!” for the villains, and enjoy a hilarious short olio show after the main production. The actors are all local and extremely talented, and it’s always a fun family activity. 

This year, it was Christmas Vacation and it was a HOOT. 

(Skirt is here/ boots are here)

Thursday morning, we slept in (praise be), I made turkey-shaped pancakes for the crew, we took a family walk, and then it was baking time!

116: Sticking to your goals over the holidays

Web Admin 0 91 Article rating: No rating

Hi friends! Hope you’re having a wonderful week and hope you have the happiest Thanksgiving surrounded by those you love. Please know how thankful I am for all of you. Your support with the blog and podcast means the world to me and I love the opportunity to hang out with my virtual besties every day.

For today’s podcast episode, I’m sharing a recording that Julie did with me about my strategies for staying healthy over the holidays and sticking to your goals during such a busy season. I did a similar episode when the podcast was a baby, but some of my strategies have changed and figured it was worth posting for those who may have missed the last one. This podcast was recorded for Julie and Kari’s show, Take the Upgrade, so it’s a reverse podcast interview situation 🙂 I hope you love it!

Here’s what we talk about:

– How to set yourself up for success with nutrition, even when there are more cocktails and treats around than normal

– Navigating two months of holiday events

– Stress management techniques and why HIIT may not be the best choice during this time

– My pre-party strategy

and so much more.

Skincare gifts and fashion finds under $100

Hi friends! Happy Monday. I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend. Sorry I disappeared on you for Friday Faves. I rarely miss a Friday Faves post but I think all of the activity of the past month and a half finally caught up to me. The icing on the cake was that I went to get blood taken for InsideTracker and passed out afterwards.

I haven’t fainted in maybe 20 years – last time, I landed on my face and broke my nose – and it rattled me a bit. I lost my vision for a few minutes and felt absolutely horrible, and the experience messed with me for a couple of days. I’m thankful for a kind tech who kept me from falling, and gave me a Snicker’s bar afterwards, which helped a ton.

But now, I’m back at it, the Grinch agreed to let me decorate before Thanksgiving so I’m surrounded by twinkly lights and pine-y things, and ready to head into Thanksgiving week. What do you have planned? We’re doing the usual lunch/dinner at my uncle’s house and stopping by madre’s afterwards. SO ready for some family time, nana’s coconut cake (the best ever), and a short week for the girls at school.

For today’s post, I wanted to share some skincare gift ideas and under $100 fashion finds. The Black Friday holiday shopping frenzy has already begun, and I’m Cheers to getting holiday shopping done early! 

(throwing it back to last year’s gigantic real Christmas tree. I think we need to go for it again)

Here’s a little bit about how I’m navigating holiday shopping:

– I made a Google Doc checklist with everyone on our list, along with gift ideas for each person

– I ordered anything I could in advance, and if I’m waiting for a Black Friday deal, I have the link in the document ready to go. The good news is that so many retailers started their Black Friday promos early.

If you’re doing the same and want to add any ideas from my gift guides, you can copy and paste the text from my blog post directly into Google Docs. The link will still work, too.
